Tour description

During the 1.5 hours voyage in the bay of Faxaflói you will see puffins, many other species of birds, and breathtaking scenery, including a fantastic view of the city, the islands Engey, Lundey and Viðey, and the majestic mountains surrounding Reykjavík.

Depending on the time of year the landscape may have snow capped peaks, or be bright purple, covered with lupin flowers, but it is always stunning. During the summer we pass by our famous puffin colonies, and all year round we see porpoises and dolphins swimming in the water around us, sometimes even whales! Our experienced guides will delight you with information about the flora and fauna in this gorgeous bay, as well as information on the history and culture of Iceland.

As we pass along the city shoreline  you will see Reykjavik from a different perspective, including some of our most famous landmarks, including Hofdi HouseHarpa, and the dynamic ‘Sun Voyager’ sculpture. Learn more about our beloved country and it’s incredible capital city with Sea Trips Reykjavik.

Our cruise on the luxury yachts Amelia Rose and Axel Rose offer an ideal excursion for bird-watchers, families or anyone wanting to experience the peaceful beauty of Icelandic nature. Sometimes we are so lucky to see whales, dolphins, and seals when we are on this route.
